Image of the Week #39

This week the image is a generalized Julia set located with an evolutionary algorithm. The Julia set uses four complex parameters and so the algorithm is searching eight-dimensional space to find them. The fractal itself is in 2D space, because Occupy Math’s readers see better there. The fitness function is one that insist that the number of interations to divergence of points within a sampling view of the fractal be relatively even — which remarkably tends to create pretty interesting fractals. Here’s the fractal:
